Pros
"I like the management aspect of this solution. You don't want to have end-users tweak or set it themselves, so the fact that you could do it from a central point helped us a lot.""The solution is easy to use.""Its management is good, and it is also scalable and mostly stable.""In general terms, it is working properly and according to our expectations. The comfort of feeling secure is the most valuable. Some customers had certain fears about changing the product because no one wants to lose any kind of information or to have some problems or inconsistencies while migrating from one product to another.""The solution is pretty stable.""The solution is great for large-scale deployments.""The installation process is pretty straightforward.""We have been very satisfied with the solution's security capabilities."

Cons
"Its remote deployment should be improved. Currently, there is no remote deployment for Symantec Endpoint Encryption. You have to install it manually. There are some issues with AD integration and the time taken to reflect a password on the Endpoint Encryption Manager when a new user has changed the password, but they are already working on these issues, and these will be resolved in the next release.""The initial setup is a bit complex.""Its decryption time needs to be improved. Currently, its decryption time is very long, and it takes double time than encryption. They need to work on that. Its encryption time is fine.""The security could be improved.""More features need to be included in the encryption software.""From an administration point of view, maybe it would be ideal to have it centrally managed.""The solution does slow down the device a little bit, once it's installed.""They have too high of a price tag. That's why they're losing the market share."

"It would be great if this solution had support for file integrity monitoring.""I would like to see more integration. Good cloud-based solutions need to be arrayed. I'd like to see better integration with administrative tools as well as Active Directory integration.""Integration and support could be improved.""We would like to see a wider, better dashboard for the purposes of monitoring the users of the Trend Micro software.""In terms of what must be improved, I would say the support, the next feature, and the road map. I think all these must be improved, but the important thing to improve is the support."
